ARTISTS
Gemma Fala
I am a passionate Welsh artist, formerly trained and graduated in Architectural Stained Glass (BAHons) and Currently studying part time, a Masters in Art Psychotherapy. I have displayed my works in Galleries, been successful on entering art competitions, provided commissioned work- public and private sector, and most recently hosting Art and Glass workshops.

I began to take an interest in Art at a very young age. It was my way of expressing my inner feelings and emotions without anyone knowing what meaning the images held. It held almost a magical, mystical power at the tips of my fingers. Later in life it became a therapeutic tool, which led me to study Art Psychotherapy today.

Gemma Fala is available for private bookings

Available most;
Saturdays and Sundays 12:30pm-10pm
Mon/thurs/fri 9am-2:30pm

Title or Location: A portrait of some friends
I used to love paper crafting as a kid and recently decided to pick it back up again. Some friends have recently bought a house and I wanted to make them a little gift so decided to try my hand at a paper and card portrait! I've got lots of craft paper that o got at a charity shop past year so went through and found pieces I thought would work, cut out all the bits, assembled them and added some detail in pen and coloured pencil. My first time doing something like this and it came out good! I'm

I kept at it , as my creativity kicked in and I began adding characters from the 1600's. My addition of Characters became a real challenge, as I had few references to Tuscany residents of the 16th century. Then I began adding the activities , such as a Monk bring in the wine, and the artist, There are two workers putting a cor
